The Newest Family Member Among the more modern anxieties of parents today is how virtual assistants will train their children to act. The fear is that kids who habitually order Amazon’s Alexa to read them a story or command Google’s Assistant to tell them a joke are learning to communicate not as polite, considerate citizens, but as demanding little twerps. Not to mention the fear that comes with the unfiltered content that may be provided when a child makes a misunderstood request!  This worry has become so widespread that Amazon and Google both announced this week that their voice assistants can now encourage kids to punctuate their requests with “please.” The version of Alexa that inhabits the new Echo Dot Kids Edition will thank children for “asking so nicely.” Google Assistant’s forthcoming Pretty Please feature will remind kids to “say the magic word” before complying with their wishes. While this sounds like a promising move in the right direction, there will never be a substitute for a good conversation or at least the genuine interest afforded from Mom or Dad. They need your attention, even if your not a global search engine. We know, we know… “I’m really busy right now!”, “I haven’t studied that since 5th grade!”, “Google it!”.  No body is a perfect parent, but give them as much of the best of you as you possibly can! Balancing Out AI (Artificial Intelligence) with some AI (Adult Interaction) It’s a scene we’re sure you’ve witnessed again and again: A family is sitting in a restaurant having dinner. The four year old is clearly fed up with sitting,...
